About This Activity

The Robby Russell Benefit, presented by Melody Oaks & Hooligan Hoggers is to raise money for Robby Russell and his family. In addition to the Running for Robby 5K, participants may enjoy the cook-off contest @ 11am and live concert performances by The Remains & Phil Hamilton @ 8pm.

Robby was diagnosed in June with a Glioblastoma, a highly malignant and aggressive brain tumor.

Glioblastomas are highly malignant because the cells reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels. Glioblastomas usually contain a mix of cell types which make it difficult to treat. Some cells may respond well to certain therapies, while others may not be affected at all. This is why treatment will combine several approaches including radiation and chemotherapy to slow the growth of the tumor.
